“Is it also nuts to have to pay overnight parking in a hotel car park, especially when street parking incurs a parking fine…?”
I agree Martyn, the hotel clearly has to pay for the upkeep & business rates for the parking area and VAT on the £1. Likely they would be financially better off by just upping the room rate by a quid and make it free parking. They might even save on the NNDR (non domestic rates). However, it is a business and supplying parking costs money so they need to recoup it.
The hotel you refer to……do they charge a drop off fee, and if yes do you support it?
Edit…….bad day at work…..my turn to be curmudgeonly!
